2006 Volvo C30 Concept

Volvo Car Corporation unveiled the Volvo C30 Design Concept at the 2006 North American International Auto Show in Detroit.

The car represents a glimpse into the Swedish manufacturer’s future as the C30 Design Concept is a close representation of what the production version of the C30 will look like when it’s officially unveiled at the 2006 Paris auto show.

The Volvo C30 Design Concept features taut lines and an aggressive stance promoting its sporty image. The two-door, four-passenger C30 Design Concept is powered by a turbocharged 5-cylinder engine producing 260 horsepower.

The sleek, modern design clearly reflects several elements from the Volvo Safety Concept Car (SCC) and the glass tailgate is reminiscent of the classic Volvo P1800 ES.

The Volvo C30 Design Concept accelerates from 0-62 mph in 6 seconds and its top speed is electronically limited to 155 mph.
